, mock debates, he and john kerry playing mitt romney. first session on saturday went okay. sunday night was a horrible experience. the president was like he was in the denver debate, lethargic, professorial, didn't seem like he was fighting for the job. at times peevish, nasty to governor kerry sitting in for mitt romney. they were panicked. that prep ended and you had a scene which we write about in double down, plouffe, axelrod, debate advisers staying up to well past midnight saying what do we do, what do we do? how can we turn this around? we can't do down this path. they did what they called an intervention with the president. four aides and the president alone meeting to try to find how to turn things around. in short in the scene the president said, as you said, i'm not sure i can do this. they did a couple of things, how he needed to change his state of mind about it. they gave him one-liners, debate on a page to try to just come up with anticipating the questions, coming up with one-liners to use in the debate, and the president resolved he was going to do it. they also gave hi
governors have used to develop a national base as they gear up for a presidential bid, like mitt romney did. >> chris could easily become our nominee and save our party and help get this nation on the right track again. they don't come better than chris christie. >> reporter: some conservatives criticize christie for embracing president obama a year ago for the super storm sandy recovery but christie dismisses that, urges republicans to work with democrats and is going out of his way to build support among women and hispanics. he brought just two out of state republicans to campaign with him this fall. rudy giuliani and new mexico governor susanna martinez. >> she's a republican governor of a blue state just like me working with democrats on the other side of the aisle to get things done and sticking to our principles. >> reporter: this election, of course, is a stark contrast to the virginia governor's race, where republicans are already starting to talk about what went wrong with their candidate, ken cuccinelli, who is more of a tea party candidate who is expected to lose to democrat terr
, and a message for their home president. martha: the president's former opponent mitt romney has choice words for him over the broken obamacare promises. >> if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. period. [applauding] bill: there are tens of thousands in the streets of tehran earlier today. anti-american rallies in the capital city today also marks the 34th anniversary of the start of the hostage situation. amy kellogg covers this from london today. the heaviest demonstrations every year now, how was this one different? >> you know, bill, my first trip coincided with this demonstration. i was literally taken from the airport in tehran the demonstration. we both started staring at me and finally one girl approached me and asked where i was from. i pointed the burning u.s. flag and she and her friends just first into smiles and said welcome to our country. not understanding the irony at all. in the past i would say these demonstrations would be full of students who sort of joined the street
? jenna: very interesting. peter, thank you. jon: former republican presidential candidate mitt romney is taking aim at some consider president obama's broken campaign promise that americans who like their health insurance can keep it. >> whether you like the model of obamacare or not the fact that the president sold it on basis that was not true, has undermined the foundation of his second term. i think it is rotting it away. jon: talk about it with bob cusack, the managing editor of "the hill." it is interesting to watch the spin in washington. president obama could not have been more clear, bob, if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. if you like your doctor, you can keep him. said that over and over and over again. >> yeah. that's right. i mean, remember a the time the democrats, it was tough getting the votes. so they had to make a lot of promises. this one was clearly broken the way the president said it. 3.5 million people have now lost their plans. obviously some will get new plans but some of them, we've seen anecdotes they liked their plan even though it was not a
the affordable care act rollout to the roll out of mitt romney' health care plan in massachusetts. however, mitt romney said in the last hour or so, those comparisons are no good. >> the key, i think, that has really undermined the president's credibility in the hearts of the american people is that he wept out as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of obama care over the last several years saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case. he could know it by looking at massachusetts and seeing people there lost insurance. >> but the so-called architect of obama care, dr. emanuel, is now defending the president's repeated insistence that americans would be able to keep their health plans if they wanted to. he's now blaming insurance companies for acting unexpectedly and dropping plans that do not comply with new mandatory minimum standards. >> passed the law, we said any plan that existed before the date the law was passed would be grandfathered in unless lots of changes were mad
and again, he wasn't telling the truth. >> romney went on to say the economy has stalled, and the u.s. has lost international credibility since president obama was re-elected. >>> the tea party movement has members of the g.o.p. now taking sides. we go to alabama where a special election shows the true republican divide. >> as the sun sets on the water that defines mobile, alabama, they get to work trying to win the soul of the republican party. >> i've been a fan of dee young's for a long, long time. >> he calls himself a true believer, of the conservative faction, the tea party. >> a country that god can look down on and say i'm proud of this country, but right now i don't think he's doing that. i don't think he's proud of the way we have conducted business. >> reporter: he's campaigning outside of a debate for this man, candidate dean young, promising to change washington with confrontation. >> i can tell you right now that barack obama does not want me to go to washington because we don't have a lot in common. there won't be a lot of bipartisanship unless these guys come to our way of
and it is an honor to be -- to have you on this program. beat romney, or did money beat money? >> money beat money. we love the happy story, but the fact of the matter is that barack obama and his supporters raised about $1.2 billion and mid romney raised about 1.3 billion dollars. it was big money versus eight money. i would argue that obama will one on the basis of his own strength. tavis: let me go forward and then we will go back. the supreme court was forced to make a decision that depending on where you stand, perhaps it was a ruling that would completely gut what is left of campaign finance. if the decision goes in the way many people think it will go -- >> it is good you raise that question. allowingentially wealthy people to give more than ever to candidates. mccutchen would allow those wealthy people in a public way to give more money. but the fact that they are giving that money now through so-called independent expenditures, what the bill would do is systematized and make it more regimented. the truth of the matter is, the barn door is already open. if the mccutchen ruling comes down,
in the polls, there is a governor race in new jersey where they will decide to reelect chris christie. romney is slamming president obama over the affordable care act and on nbc he is unhappy with the similar law that romney signed when he was governor of massachusetts. >> in massachusetts we phased in the requirements so that there was a slow roll out, that way you could test the systems as you went along to make sure there wouldn't be glitches and the most important lesson the president failed to learn was you have to tell the american people the truth. and when he told the american people that you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period, he said that time and again. >> right. >> he wasn't telling the truth. >> reporter: romney said the economy stalled and u.s. lost international credibility since the president was e elected. the senate will take up antidiscrimination bill today to ban workplace discrimination against gays and transgender people and delves say they are fairly confident of the outcome but the bill needs backing from republicans and passage w
mitt romney seriously considered chris christie for vice president. the new jersey governor was apparently ruled out because of unanswered questions about his background and, quote, health concerns. >>> there's also new data on the number of people who signed up for obama care on day one. are these numbers a sign of trouble or what was expected? we'll talk about it and what it means for the white house as well as the uninsured and the fight against the rollout with the republican national committee chair, reince priebus, next. when you vote for flo, we'll have discounts. ice-cream discounts. multi-cookie discounts. pizza loyalty discounts!

's why they went with mitt romney. remember, they tried every other person, every other republican got a shot at being number one, newt gingrich and herman cane and rick perry, but they were all even too ridiculous and lame for the tea party. but ted cruz is a harvard educated lawyer, not a dumb knee. >> alan told me one of the brightest people he's had. you can't under estimate it. >> he's played it exactly right. he is their hero. he's the guy they think finally stood up to the establishment and did what he said and went to washington and blah, blah, blah. so he's going to be very difficult to beat in the primaries. >> could it be him against chris christie? >> it probably will be. >> who will prevail? >> if it's the primary voters who vote every time, i think it will be ted cruz. chris christie may already be toast because during hurricane sandy, he put his hand over president blankestein. he's suspect. he's from the northeast and once in awhile said things that make sense. so, i mean. >> instantly ruled out. >> he could be ruled out already. >> what would he say about america if te
. these were some conservative groups. had some romney people in them. conservative groups that democrats wanted to disqualify. treat these groups as political action committees not as nonprofit issue advocacy groups. mixed up in that. >> she did this. but she -- you know, she sent the fec lawyers -- they didn't out her. they didn't say anything. she probably said something to somebody. and we know anybody -- there are probably a lot of people were fingerprints on this. and a lot of people new, a lot of people looked the other way. and no one gave a damn to speak of. >> nobody until years later. we should mention the original stories, these were a couple of rogue irs agents in cincinnati. this truly shows that was never ever true. >> and the president wanted to get to the bottom of it too. byron, thank you. >> thanks for being with us. see you tomorrow night right here at our new time 7 p.m. eastern. don't you love it? we do. up next, the o'reilly factor. make sure you go to gretawire.com. i'm sure you have a lot to say about the irs and how much you love them. how about that lois learner
there are a lot of remnants of health care that goes back to mitt romney who certainly was in business when he was the governor of massachusetts laying out that plan, will prices stay low enough for consumers to justify obama care? >> yes. i believe it's going to be the case. >> should somebody get fired for how poorly the rollout has gone so far? >> i'm not going to give the president advice on hiring and firing, but when things go wrong, like they go wrong in our state, i take responsibility for it and i fix it. that's what secretary is sebeli and the president are doing, they're taking responsibility for a bad rollout. they're going to fix it. everybody needs to chill out because it is going to work. these plans and medicaid are directed toward prevention and wellness, and that is the future of health care, and i think everybody knows it. >> all right, i'm going to leave it there. governor beshear, governor kasich, a lot more to discuss on this as time goes on. i appreciate both your time this morning. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> thank you. >>> after president obama signed the aff
will the affordable care act in boston at the same place that mitt romney signed into law his health care initiative. that coverage also on c-span. sticking with the president today -- peter baker in the new writes about the accountability on the nsa spying issue. here's peter baker's headline. post, bye washington scott wilson, controversies show how obama's inattention to detail may hurt his presidential legacy. we want to get your thoughts on this. republicans, (202) 585-3881. democrats, (202) 585-3880. independents, (202) 585-3882. tweet, @cspanwj. you can also post your comments on facebook or e-mail us. on both fronts on the nsa and the health care law, president obama's! down to this -- i did not know. no president can be aware of everything going on in a sprawling government that he theoretically manage. -- theoretically manages. this constant questions about how much in charge he really is. days, the president's health and human services secretary said that the -- that despite internal concerns in a mr. obama wasn, not told about serious problems with the new row graham's website until it
to former governor romney to call it romneycare. i don't think it's disrespectful to call the unaffordable care act obamacare. so no disrespect to the president intended by referring to his signature bill. but people have been hurt. people have been moved from full-time employment to part-time employment. they like their insurance policy, but then they found out they didn't get to keep it. they've lost it. they found out their deductible shot up dramatically and can't afford the thousands of dollars that will be refired before their insurance policy kicks in. we have seen news reports about companies that had to drop spouses from coverage or families from coverage or drop coverage all together. we found out that there may be as many as 80% of those who individually bought their insurance that will or have lost their insurance. and so, when i see a number like projected 14 million americans will lose their insurance, my understanding is that most of these projections about the millions that are losing their insurance are actually talking about millions of policies that are lost. so, for exa
're trying implement a program that you worked hard with mitt romney to make sure it was side lined. didn't happen, so we have it. after yesterday's reveal, notes taken from the war room meeting after day one, there were six people across the country who were able to sign up. >> totally absurd. the rollout is much, much worse than i thought it would be. i thought it would be terrible. but i actually think it will get worse when it rolls out because when it rolls out, we're going find out that everybody is signing up for medicaid and it will bankrupt the program. the whole theory of this is that a lot of healthy young people were gog buy insurance and they're going to fund all that additional amount of money. that's not going to happen. more people will be taking government money. this program is going to be an absolute total disaster. not to mention all the insurance policies canceled, all the people whose freedom has been taken away about the doctor they can go to. >> who is hurting more by the rollout. you need 7 million people to sign up by march 1. you have people facing premiums or b
health insurance reform program and governor romney signs it into law and they implement it, and after a month they have 122 people signed up for it. or than 36 thousand people signed up for it, but in that first month, enrollment was low. the important thing is we provide steady, improvements to the accessibility to the website into the accessibility of information and and roll it through other means available to the millions americans who want to shop for insurance are able to do so. >> this is the federal exchange only -- >> i have not seen the document. >> does the president think the united states has a special safetyibility for iraq's whether or not he believes in the works on and -- >> the president believes it is in the interest of the united states ever robust relationship and direct -- with direct help them deal with -- with iraq and help in the will of their challenges as it makes its way out of decades of dictatorship and tierney and terrible -- -- tyranny and terrible violence. the president believes it was the wrong thing to get involved in that war. he thought it was his
you feel this is a conversation that the republican party has been having at least since mitt romney lost the election last year perhaps before. do you feel the impact of the shutdown, the low poll numbers that we're seeing is this actually something that will impact the direction of the party? will it be forgotten in three or four weeks? >> it depends on what lessons people take from it. that's why we wrote this article because we wanted people to take the right lesson from it. it's certainly possible for people to conclude well we just should have been purer. it's never -- it's always self-confirming. >> where does it? i'm genuinely concerned about the republican party. >> come on, gene. you don't have to lie for us. come on. >> i didn't say -- >> next you'll be telling us if we want to keep our insurance we can keep our insurance. >> no. i did not say i love the republican party. i said many times and have written that i think a strong two party system is a good thing. >> i can tell you that ramesh and i and rich and the rest of the guys are thankful for your concern for the conse
